Annoys me that you guys rate this so highly. It tastes like crap. It's almost as bad as Firestone Walker Reserve's Porter. Not sure what it is about porters that if they are not good I want to pour them out. But I'm hugely disappointed by this one. It's just the taste - the color, smell, mouthfeel is all fine. But unfortunately the taste it most important to me. Up front it's OK, like any decent porter, not great. But the aftertaste is just totally lackluster like dirty cardboard dipped in soda water.

500ml bottle purchased at the Drinkery in Derry, New Hampshire. Dark black, good head. Aroma was dark malts, only the slightest hint of chocolate. Flavor was much the same and I must say I was a little let down after being so impressed by Lunch. Oh well, glad to have tried this one.

Bottled 10MAR13

Hope this beer is as highly valuable as the $8 price tag. Pours near black with a broken sheet of light mocha foam. Smells of toasted malts, coffee, some bitter cocoa, some raisin, some leather and soil and a bit of resiny hops. Flavor is dry with coffee, dark toasted malts, some more leather, some dirt, some bitterness, some bits of maduro tobacco. Fairly thin for the style with low carb and a dry finish - not sure this leaves me disappointed, but it's certainly different for the style. Overall a beer that is drinkable, but not something I'd tell others to buy and drink over some of the better options out there (although I haven't seen better options bottled here in Boston)
